Has anybody tied in an aftermarket alarm into there factory alarm? I have, and i have a small problem now. Everything works fine, both factory and aftermarket. The problem is that the factory will occationally arm its self while im driving. I know it takes one negative pulse to arm the alarm. My questions is were is it getting this pulse from? Any one have an idea?

Re: Factory alarm self arms (Silver_Bullet99)

I may be that your alarm has a self arm option. Many times alarms come preset to arm arfter a certain amount of time. It's made to lock the doors automatically when you drive, similar to GM vechicles that lock the doors when you put them in gear. I had a similar problem, and I just disabled that feature in my aftermarket alarm.
Good luck

this is the exact same thing that happened to me. the clifford has a door lock option that comes avtivated from the factory. so when it gave the signal to lcok the doors it activated the stock alarm while the car was running. check the manual of the aftermarket alarm to see how to deactivte the auto door lock option.

Re: Factory alarm self arms (jmvar)

I did all that already. Its not the same all the time though. sometimes it will beep, then the doors lock, and sometimes the Led light will start flashing on the door but the doors wont lock. Both time if i open a door the factory alarm will go off. The aftermarcket is a micro alarm.
